Men's Jean Trends

Make sure your jean choice is always relevant and on top of the latest trends when you shop AE men’s jean trends. At American Eagle we believe that a good pair of jeans can be a gamechanger and bring confidence to your day, so suiting up in a fresh pair of jeans in all the latest color, design and fabric trends is an easy way to level up your look so you feel good from morning to night. We’ve spent over 40 years making the best jeans in the business, and we spend a lot of time figuring out the newest must-have fits and styles so you can always have a look you’re into every day of the week. Pair your new AE jeans with a t-shirt for an easy jeans and a tee style, or dress it up a little with a long sleeve button down shirt. Whatever way you wear it, make the look yours.

Let’s jump into what makes a jean trend so good. There are so many options in terms of style, design, wash and details so you can always have the exact look you want, when you want it. Say you want to recreate the perfect throwback outfit for 90s night or you have an old graphic t-shirt you want to put to good use - the light wash jean trend is an easy winner with vintage washes and colors. Or if your style is more middle of the road, medium wash jeans come in classic blue hues that match pretty much every AE men’s shirt. And for those more dressed up jean outfits, try out dark wash jeans that come in deeper indigo hues. For those days you want to change up your look, colored jeans are an easy wardrobe add with non-traditional colors like olive, khaki, pink, gray and more.

When it comes to fabrics, you’ll always have options too. Non-stretch jeans use rigid cotton denim that breaks in over time to create a look that’s all you. On the opposite end of the spectrum though, the stretch jean trend isn’t going anywhere either, and our Ne(X)t Level Flex fabric doesn’t mess around when it comes to comfort. These stretch jeans deliver comfort beyond anything you’ve ever felt, and are designed to never bag out even after a full day of wear. Selvedge jeans use premium denim bound with a “self edge” so it doesn’t unravel. Our selvedge jeans use Flex denim that’s durable and has just enough stretch so it’s comfortable and feels good. We use the best fabrics in the business, and since our selvedge jeans are finished by hand, they look as good as they feel.

One trend we can always get behind is the ripped jean look. Ripped jeans add a little edge to your day that always looks good for all your non-formal events like a coffee date, trips to the park or movie night. Ripped jeans come in different levels of destruction so you can always have the exact look you love – ranging from lightly distressed jeans with frayed hems and pocket details to heavily destroyed jeans with bigger holes, mending and patched details. Choose a light wash jean with ripped knees and wear it with a crewneck shirt for a simple, laid-back look, or go for a dark wash jean with a button down shirt for a fresh take on an old favorite. AE men’s jeans come in waist sizes 26-44 and lengths 28-36 so you can find the right fit and feel for you.
